World of Warcraft’s 5.3 Escalation patch brings with it a solid amount of new content, as well as some balance changes. Always a precarious topic, balance changes can topple the mighty and give life to the more downtrodden classes. Did your favorite class win, lose or stay about the same in 5.3? Find out below! WINNERS HUNTERS While Hunter pet crowd control abilities are taking a decent nerf in 5.3 with most abilities having their cooldowns increased from one minute to two minutes, (the exception being the worm family’s burrow attack, which is actually receiving a cooldown buff) Hunters are getting some love. Aspect of the Hawk and the Aspect of the Iron Hawk Glyph are bumping up ranged attack power from 25%, from 15%. Hunters utilizing the Marksmanship specialization will see an increase in multishot damage, up to 60% from 30%. Beast Mastery’s Beast Cleave is getting a 25% ...

World of Warcraft’s 5.3 patch is primed to bring a lot of new content with it. 33% less experience to level from 85 to 90! Balance changes across the board! New scenarios, quests and even a new battleground! While informative, patch notes can be somewhat tedious to wade through. Fortunately, BlizzPro’s here to break it down. Today, we’ll be talking new scenarios, battlegrounds, arenas and quest campaigns. Scenarios 5.3 will bring with it four new scenarios, Blood in the Snow, Dark Heart of Pandaria, Secrets of Ragefire and Battle on the High Seas. These scenarios will focus on the continued plights of the Horde and Alliance in their dealings with infighting, menacing new powers, and of course, the continued war between the two factions, this time on the waters. These four new scenarios, along with two pre-existing ones (Crypt of the Forgotten Kings and A Brewing Storm) will feature heroic ...

The new World of Warcraft graphic novel titled “World of Warcraft: Dark Riders” has hit the store shelves this week. Writer Mike Costa and artist Neil Googe have teamed up to bring this story that possibly several people don’t fully know about as these characters are really only alluded to in the game. The book centers around the Dark Riders of the Deadwind Pass and revolves around the story of  the Scythe of Elune. The most interesting thing about this graphic novel is the fact that these heroes aren’t your major characters in the game, the fact that they’re really only mentioned a few times in quests in the game and nothing else should tell you that. These characters are heroes just like me and you play in World of Warcraft – and like us they seemed to have gotten themselves into quite the situation. If you’re interested in picking ...

One of the top hardcore raiding guilds in World of Warcraft is calling it quits and the reasoning given by Killars on this Facebook post boils down to hardcore raiding just being too hard. Killars goes on to say that the game is not to blame but it’s the raiding community that is to blame. You see… we’ve basically been killing ourselves off slowly since day 1. In the last few years we’ve certainly picked up the pace, but the “hardcore raider” is a dying breed and it’s certainly becoming a more difficult breed to be a part of. What I mean by this is of course the time commitment and the level of shear dedication and determination it takes and costs to be at the very top. This isn’t to poke fun, but to just shed light of why many people, and subsequently, many guilds will fall. Raiding for ...

Patch 5.2 got another hotfix today that I think will make several people very happy (I know I’m ecstatic). The biggest change this week is that the weekly quest to get 3 Mogu Runes of Fate has been reduced to needing 50 Lesser Charms of Good Fortune instead of the 90 it used to be. As someone like me who is exalted with all the Mists of Pandaria factions right now and not overly interested in doing pet battles it’s a little refreshing that I don’t have the chore of doing as many dailies each week. Also players who are fighting Oondasta or Nalak from another realm are eligible for loot once again on the kill. You can read the full hotfix patch notes here. April 22 Creatures Players coalesced from a different realm are now eligible to receive loot or use a bonus roll after defeating Oondasta or Nalak. Quests Mogu Runes ...
